The principal, Mr. Carracappa, is a breath of fresh air. As a parent, I respect him very much for the way he respects his students as well as their parents. The entire staff is always there to help and answer questions/concerns the children or the parents may have. Mr. Caracappa and his staff put so much of their time and effort into making student education and college readiness a priority. There are so many opportunities for the kids to be involved in groups and activities. My high school experience and education, in a Philadelphia Catholic school, was absolutely PITIFUL compared to the level of involvement or college prep that UMHS provides.

Overall, I loved my time at Upper Moreland. I was lucky enough to have lots of amazing teachers to guide me throughout my high school experience. However, I'd like to see the treatment of LGBT+ students change. The attitude towards them is mostly positive (especially with teachers), but many LGBT+ students are bullied, and it seems like not many faculty members are doing anything to combat it.
I'm currently a senior at Upper Moreland High School. I like how we have a variety of classes and how block scheduling helps prepare us for college. However, there are some people in positions that don't care for the students. They just do a lot of talking but don't get anything done. I would like to see some more diversity and acceptance in the school. Many "favorites" are white people and being Asian myself, I've noticed that many staff members will only say hi or make conversation with white students. It's discouraging sometimes.
